The first "scrub boards" arrived in 1796, and the first "clothes dryer" (hand powered of course) were invented in the early 1800's. The first "hand powered" washing machine was not invented until around the 1850’s, and in 1861 the first clothes wringer was added to the washing machine.  Inventor William Blackstone created one for his wife as a birthday present. 

Over 80 percent of households in the United States own a washing machine.  The average family does 8–10 loads of laundry each week.  Sometimes I look around my house and can’t believe how much stuff piles up on a weekly basis.
